Chocolate Nutella Alfajores

10 Feb



When I saw these Chocolate Nutella Alfajores at 6 Bittersweet, I knew they would be the perfect Valentine’s Day treat. Sandwiched together by a generous helping of Nutella, these cookies are crisp, moist, and absolutely delicious. The light cocoa flavor of the cookie pairs perfectly with the rich, creamy texture of the Nutella. When cut-out with a heart-shaped cookie cutter, they are pretty festive as well.


These cookies also gave me yet another opportunity to whip out my “Message in a Cookie” cutters that have now become one of my favorite baking accessories. This time around, I stamped my cookies with lovely sayings like “You’re the PB [peanut butter] to my J [jelly],” “Be Mine Valentine",” “Oh La La,” and the ever so classy “Je T’aime” (everything in French sounds classy, right?). 


The best part (besides the eating part) was constructing the alfajores by gluing two cookies together with a bit of Nutella and adorning the sides with crushed almonds to add extra crunch. Since the boyfriend loves rainbow sprinkles, I also covered the sides of a few cookies with a generous amount of sprinkles.
